Attendees of the networking event


On July 31, Opportunity Fund, along the Wurwand Foundation and its Found / LA initiative, co-hosted a special networking event designed to connect female entrepreneurs and community leaders from around the LA area.


It was a fun evening filled with delicious food, refreshing drinks, and a networking session facilitated by Natasha Case, Coolhaus ice cream founder and CEO and Opportunity Fund board member, who also shared her personal experiences as a successful ‘Opportunity Funded’ businesswoman.


Like-minded women entrepreneurs and leaders spent the night connecting with one another, sharing experiences and resources, and building community. The pictures capture the true essence of the event — the fun, the inspiration, the laughs, the conversations, and, most importantly, the meaningful connections that were made!


Special thanks to the Wurwand Foundation, Natasha Case, and Mama’s International Tamales.


And a big thank you to everyone who joined us as well as those of you who couldn’t attend, but support our mission every day. We plan to host more networking events like this to promote meaningful connections between our mission-driven donors and hard-working clients. We hope you’ll join us and bring your friends!



It was a powerful evening where new entrepreneurs got the chance to connect with one another, share stories and ask questions to experts in the field, all in a safe space. I am in awe of the stories of resiliency that our clients have. I feel proud to be part of Opportunity Fund to support these inspiring women realizing their dreams!”
